71. White Paper on Fire Resistance of Timber Structures
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/18/2014
Authors: Andrew Buchanan, Birgit SP Wood Technology, Sweden ¿tman, Andrea Frangi
Abstract: Fire resistance of timber structures is a very large field. In order to keep this document relatively small, the scope of is limited as follows: , This report attempts to define a Performance-Based framework for the fire safety design of multi-sto ...

72. Nanoscale Kirkendall effect and oxidation kinetics in copper nanocrystals characterized by real-time, in-situ optical spectroscopy
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 9/5/2014
Authors: Katherine P. Rice, Andrew Paterson, Mark Stoykovich
Abstract: The low-temperature oxidation of ~10 nm diameter copper nanocrystals was characterized using in-situ UV-vis absorbance spectroscopy and observed to lead to hollow copper oxide shells via the nanoscale Kirkendall effect. The kinetics of the oxidation ...

73. Improvement in the Evaluation of a Rectangular Waveguide Microcalorimeter Correction Factora
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/29/2014
Authors: Thomas P. Crowley, Weihai Fang
Abstract: The correction factor of the National Institute of Standards and Technology‰s WR-15 (50 to 75 GHz) microcalorimeters has been re-evaluated. Use of modeled values for the reflection coefficient of a flat short and offset short instead of measured valu ...

74. Dielectrofluidics for Electronic-Based Chemical and Particle Analysis
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/18/2014
Authors: James C Booth, Spencer Thomas Egan, Charles Anderson Enright Little, A Padilla, Yu Y. Wang, Nathan D Orloff
Abstract: The interactions of electromagnetic fields with matter are described by means of the polarization and magnetization of the material under study. Analogous to the way that magnetofluidics seeks to exploit magnetic interactions for sensing and manipula ...

75. Effect of Ozonation on Fungal Resistance of Bamboo and Oak
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/15/2014
Authors: Chi Hoang, Tinh Nguyen, Deborah L Stanley, Andrew Keith Persily, Richard Cosi
Abstract: Wood is gaining increased interest as a renewable building material. However, color changes, chemical and microbiological degradation can occur when lignocellulosic materials are exposed to environmental stressors such as ozone and elevated humidity. ...

76. Infiltration in energy modeling: a simple equation made better
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: Lisa C Ng, Andrew Keith Persily, Steven J Emmerich
Abstract: As building envelope performance and HVAC equipment efficiencies continue to be improved to reduce building energy use, a greater percentage of the total energy loss of a building can occur through envelope leakage. Although the energy impacts of uni ...

77. Indoor Air Quality: The Forgotten, Yet Critical, Element in Sustainable Buildings
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Kevin Yale Teichman, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: In this paper, we consider how high performing, sustainable building programs and designs are currently addressing indoor air quality (IAQ) and how they might improve their treatment of IAQ. As part of this effort, we reviewed 100 case studies of hig ...

78. Long Term Air Quality Monitoring in a Net-Zero Energy Residential Test Facility Designed with Specifications for Low Emitting Interior Products
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Lisa C Ng, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily, Alfred Hodgson
Abstract: This study evaluated the effectiveness of a low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) specification designed to minimize occupant exposures to indoor air pollutants in a net-zero energy research house meeting the ASHRAE Standard 62.2 ventilation requireme ...

79. Long Term Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam Insulation
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/6/2014
Authors: Dustin G Poppendieck, Steven J Nabinger, Matthew P Schlegel, Andrew Keith Persily
Abstract: The desire to build more energy efficient homes in the United States has lead to the expansion of the residential spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation industry. Annually, over 100,000 homes in the United States are constructed or retrofit using S ...

80. Particle Image Velocimetry Experiments in a Wind Tunnel to Study Wind-driven Airflow through Building Openings
Topic: Building and Fire Research
Published: 8/6/2014
Author: Liang Chung J Lo
Abstract: Today‰s low energy and sustainable buildings often call for innovative designs involving strategies such as natural ventilation. However, natural ventilation airflows are often difficult to estimate, in large part due to the unsteadiness of the wind. ...
